Sending email attachments directly via InputStream from Javamail

Hi,

Currently, I am making use of the Javamail api to send out mails with attachments.  It is currently implemented by initialising the DataSource to FileDataSource.  However, for this to work, a physical file must exist in the system.  

I was wondering if there is any way in which we can attach the attachments directly from an InputStream.    

Currently, the code we use to attach the attachment is:

      messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
      DataSource source = new FileDataSource(attachmentFiles[i]);
      messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(source));
      messageBodyPart.setFileName(attachmentFileNames[i]);
      multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

Write you own DataSource implementation to wrap a stream.
